Hello everyone,

i would like to share my experience about OCA Exam i guess that will help most of the guys preparing for it,so lets start

References used -
1)Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide by Jeanne Boyarsky abd Scott Selikoff.
2)OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide (Exam 1Z0-808) (Oracle Press) by Edward G. Finegan, Robert Liguori.

First i started with Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff i got like 50 % confident but not so sure to actually book the exam as i had no programming background
then i thought to refer to the one by Edward G. Finegan, Robert Liguori. i should say its good one for basic concepts but not whats required for the Exam but have
really good set of practice exam which will boost your confidence.

I Want to Thanks Jeanne Boyarsky abd Scott Selikoff for that book i guess without your Book it would have been a dream to get good score.
and Thanks to Edward G. Finegan and Robert Liguori for providing a good set of practice test


Finally Suggestions /Feedback--
1) to Edward G. Finegan and Robert Liguori
i don't know why you guys don't have new questions for Mock test as once your done with Chapter Test is so so easy to get 100%in mock. As the Mock questions are the same,So please think on changing the Mock test Questions.
2) to Jeanne Boyarsky and Scott Selikoff
Nothing So important i mean you Rock, but the online Simulator is to to to slow (laggy) this made me go wrong on questions which i actually ticked right but the simulator took it wrong.
So please check that part as taking exam using a Simulator really helps.

To guys who want to know how to score good i will say don't go for Free Mock Test Online as the have many WRONG answers
just go for Enthuware tests for OCA-JP-I-SE8 (JA + I V8) or book practice exam. nothing else is actually required

I need to mention that's my personal Experience don't want to hurt any one but its just what i think

Once Again Thanks to you all for your help
Regards
Rohit Gaikwad

Hey Rohit,

Congratulations on a most excellent score! We tried to write questions that were slightly harder (ok sometimes a lot harder) than the real exam so as to better prepare you. After all, it's a lot of pressure to sit and take the exam for real than taking the practice exam at home. Oh and if you have time, please consider writing a review on Amazon to help others searching for books.

As for the simulator, Jeanne and I don't have any involvement in the app (we just submit a set of questions). I recommend you contact Sybex directly and give them your feedback, so they can incorporate it into the app.
